Partner Communications Announces Receiving a Lawsuit and a Motion for the Recognition of This Lawsuit as a Class Action

ROSH HA'AYIN, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Partner Communications Company Ltd. ("Partner" or the "Company") (PTNR) (PTNR.TA), a leading Israeli communications operator, announces that the Company received a lawsuit and a motion for the recognition of this lawsuit as a class action, filed against Partner in the Haifa District Court on April 2, 2017.

The claim alleges that Partner enrolls customers to its "internet and fixed-line communications" service (the "Service") and charges them for the Service without their having ordered it and with respect to some of them, charges them without their having used the Service. In addition, it is claimed that customers that contacted Partner in writing, claiming that they were overcharged and were afterwards credited by Partner, did not receive a written response to their letters so that they were unable to know whether the credit is partial or full.

If the claim filed against Partner is recognized as a class action, the total amount claimed against Partner is estimated by the plaintiffs to be approximately NIS 60 million.

Partner is reviewing and assessing the lawsuit and is unable at this preliminary stage, to evaluate, with any degree of certainty, the probability of success of the lawsuit or the range of potential exposure, if any.
